A former police officer shot a Georgia county sheriff and his deputy when they intervened in a domestic dispute in which three people were killed, local media said on Monday.

Habersham County’s Joey Terrell and Deputy Bill Zigan had been called out late on Sunday to a house in Clarkesville, northeastern Georgia, where they had found a woman dead in the garage, the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) reported, citing the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.  

Neither men had life-threatening injuries, AJC said.

The woman in the garage has been identified as the ex-wife of the gunman – a former police officer in Gainesville, Florida – and he was also among the dead, local media said.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation could not immediately be reached for comment.

  1. “Neither men had life-threatening injuries, AJC said.”

    Was hoping for a happy ending. 🙁

    (not really, saw the other article on this one first).

  2. on a late Sunday too. how convenient. Sunday’s have many uses. was this right before, during, or after shift change? if I seem cynical, its because I am. I believe only part of this story. the part where people died.
